Nesting and foraging opportunities

In the Western and Eastern part of Slovakia there will be 55 aluminum nest boxes installed for the Saker Falcon and in the trees there will be 40 artificial nests installed for both the Saker Falcon and the Imperial Eagle. The aim of these activities is to stabilize and increase the population of two endangered species.

The project will secure management on two key areas. The first is endemic colonies suslik in the protected bird area Slovak Karst. Suslik (Spermophilus citellus) is a very important historical prey of Saker Falcon and Imperial Eagle, but in consequence of the disappearance of the pastures in the country disappear suslik rapidly.

The results achieved during the project period are presented under this link.
